Today I went with 12 friends for the Christmas menu.It was wonderful.Proper Christmas lunch with all the trimmings including crackers and candles.There were at least 8 vegetables including the most delicious cauliflower cheese.The Christmas pudding smelt wonderful but I was so full I just had a scoop of ice cream.I cannot recommend this place highly enough.

Lovely traditional pub and very unpretentious, which is really good. Very warm welcome, good selection of Yorkshire beers and Ales. The freshly home cooked food prepared with locally sourced ingredients is served up quickly with smile and very tasty. Nothing more comforting than a log fire raging next to you.

Just eaten the Lamb Henry, quite simply the best pub meal I've ever eaten, if not the best out of home lamb dish. Superb. Lovely local beers too.

Description
The White Horse Inn is situated in the beautiful village of Ampleforth, North Yorkshire which is the gateway to many fabulous walks and Ampleforth College.Pete and Nikki offer you a warm welcome to their 18th century traditional country inn which dates back to 1768. Its charming cosy rooms with log fires, oak beamed ceilings, flagstone floors, candlelit tables and a warm friendly atmosphere make it the perfect place to relax and unwind.We offer traditional hand pulled beers and fine wines by the glass. Our great local characters, not only give the inn that 'traditional proper pub' feel, but also have a wealth of knowledge about the history of the pub and the area, which they regularly share with our visitors.Our food is locally sourced, freshly prepared and cooked to order
